From Blah to Beautiful: Master Bedroom Re-Reveal

Our Master Bedroom is finished...
It's amazing how a few colorful accessories will make the room so much better when you're decorating a space.
It's also surprising to me that I did all of this in a week! 
When I'm looking for something, it usually takes me forever to find something I like, but I lucked out!

On Monday...

...I had an appointment with my chiropractor, which just happens to be close to a Marshall's store. I thought I would have enough energy to shop the store, since this particular store isn't too large. I made my way in and headed straight to the home section in the back and found the pillows above. 
I was obsessed looking for a shiny silver pillow ever since I saw this little vignette at the Model Home Tour Mr. DIY and I took awhile back. 
I couldn't find one that was less than $50! I even looked at fabric since I can sew, but all the fabric I liked was too expensive.  So glad I went to Marshall's that day. The two Nicole Miller pillows were $16.99 each and the silver pillow was $19.99. I used one of the gift cards I received from my credit card points, so the shopping trip didn't have to come out of the budget.

This is how our Master Bedroom looked last week when we showed you the new paint... The neutral paint on the walls is great for resale and looks lighter and brighter, but it's a little bland don't you think?

Here's how it looks after a few colorful pillows and a coordinating darker quilt.
Much better! I found the pillows at Marshall's on Monday and that evening I was online and googled "gray king size pillow shams" and they  popped up from I couldn't believe my luck. They even had a coordinating king size quilt. The quilt and the pillow covers look purple in the photos, but they are actually dark gray in person.

So now I have a question for you. Do you like the bed WITH the beige rectangular pillow?...

...or WITHOUT?

WITHOUT the beige pillow?...

...or WITH the beige pillow?

Let me know what you think with a quick comment or on Facebook.
